    Hi, is anyone familiar with the form to gain more time for enforcement? Got someone owing just shy of 6k and have found out now working. I have been tracking this joker for years and now may have means but order was 16/01/13 so almost 6 years up :-( Could of sworn I read somewhere that you can get another 6 years but cannot find the form an local court are useless cannot get through on phone so guess a visit required. Tks


    Perhaps it is form N445 but not sure how to fill the form in. Currently got an urgent trace running on him, would the figures to be added include the 8% pa, dont even know what type of warrant it is and cannot find a guide to complete, any help much appreciated.


      Just apply for an attachment of earnings order ASAP, surely?



        Thanks JK0, think I am time limited, it is 2nd hand information that he is working and also dont have a current address. Guess key is the correct form and filling it out correctly to ask to extend the time, obviously taking into account that the interest will stop at 6 years.

          Good news. I have just contacted the tenant referencing company that we used to enquire whether they had any additional information on the tenant which had not been included in the PDF report that they had sent us. They said 'yes' and were able to provide me with a payroll number and also a job title and location for the tenant. I have just put the completed attachment of earnings application form in the post and have everything crossed. Wish me luck that I do not end up with a 10 pence a month order. The tenant owes us over 10K, including interest and fees!
          I was searching for something related to my predicament and I saw this post.

          i need all the help that I can get. Tenant owes over 6k and is been evicted soon—-warrant issued. I just need to know the process of getting my money back. Kindly assist me with what worked for you. Steps and process. I will really appreciate it.


            I've recently found that one of my tenants in another property who owes me 6 months rent arrears owns an apartment in Croatia. If I get a CCJ registered against him, is there a way I can get this transferred to Croatia and charged against his apartment to make him pay. I've heard of the European Payment Order (https://e-justice.europa.eu/content_...dures-41-en.do)

            Has anyone had any luck getting money/placing a charge on foreign properties when foreign nationals come to the UK, run up rent arrears and then go back to Europe?

            many thanks


              Successfully did it from one legal jurisdiction to another (Scotland, recover £££ from England) . Found a firm that helped. Bet there are some but as UK has left EU, fewer & fewer rights that we used to enjoy.... sigh!

              I'm sure someone can list the benefits we now enjoy being out...

                Sorry, you'll need some kind of specialist help.

                The answer used to be yes (although how successful such cases were in practice I have no idea). But both mechanisms were available as part of our EU membership.

                That form and European Small Claims procedure may or may not have been kept alive by the transition agreement after 31st March this year, but I certainly don't know.

                And any process is likely to be affected by the end of transition on 31st December, when, as currently expected we end our existing relationship with the EU altogether.
                When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
                Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                  Surely the landlord is "Estate of Mum"??

                  I don't think any new tenancy agreement is needed - surely the old one simply continues?? But IANAL.

                  Hi. Quick question

                  property portfolio is under probate.

                  the land-lady (Mum) used the family office address as the landlord address on the tenancy agreement, rather than her home address. Always did this for 20 odd years.

                  Under probate, I have to sign a new tenancy...

                  Nucecad - thanks.

                  I have S8 notice which expires in May (issued in May last year) but I have just issued mcol claim up to March. Do I need two months arrears to issue a possession claim based on S8 ?...

                  Hello All

                  I am waiting for an eviction ban to be lifted but as time goes I lose hope that it will happen in the near future or ever. What then are our options to get our property back if the tenant never moves out ? My tenant won’t move out until bailiffs evict him. I have PO based...

                  As far as I know, you can't serve a s8 notice and proceed to court when you already have a court order for possession.
                  You can't simply keep trying the same matter, it's an abuse of process.

                  Section 8 notices have mandatory and discretionary grounds.
                  Had you not got a s21 notice,...

                  Not on the s8 for arrears if he pays them off before any ruling. - But the Possession Order that you say you already have from the s21 may still be valid.

                  That existing PO validity (if you later issue a s8 for arrears) is what I'm not sure about.

                  Of course any of this depends...

                  If I issued S8 and he payed off the arrears then I would not be able to claim possession of the property. Is that right ?...

                  Or issue a MCOL for the arrears - especially if he has the money to pay - and keep issuing them every time he's in arrears.

                  Good Luck ...

                  If you are sure that he will pay the arrears if you issue an s8 then issuing that s8 seems an obvious move to me to get some money from him.

                  TBH I'm not sure that issuing a new s8 would cancel your existing s21 PO anyway? Someone with more legal eviction knowledge may comment on that....

                  Slackjawedyokel - thanks. Optimism help as there is no other option.

                  I have made an offer/present to my T. to cancel many months of arrears for many thousands. Dead silence. So more ccjs to follow.

                  Good luck with the jab !...
